Charnwood Sports Awards 2017

The Charnwood Sports Awards are a fantastic way to give recognition to committed athletes and dedicated volunteers, who give up their spare time to coah, and those behind the scenes who work tirelessly to help clubs run smoothly.

The 2017 awards focus on the achievements gained from September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2017. The exception to this is the Contribution to School Sport Award which is not restricted to this 12 month period.

Nominations for the Charnwood Sports Awards 2017 are now closed.

Shortlisted nominees in each catagory will be invited to a presentation night on December 4, 2017.

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, or you have any questions, please email georgina.gallagher@charnwood.gov.uk or call 01509 632525.
